I have been to several conference's lately that have indicated that only the Doctor/Proivder of services can document the chief complaint. I have brought this back to my peers and they want proof. The only proof I have is the 1995 documentation guidelines that indicate that ancillay staff can document the ROS and PFSH. They say that is subjective and they want something from an accredited organization, CMS, AAPC, Ect to back up that statement. Can I get some help.
